Post The Unit Crest As A Painted Sign Or In Any Other Form.


Recommended Posts

A Chaffee tank of the New Jersey National Guard's 102nd Cavalry with it's unit crest painted on it's turret (I image it's on both sides). Uncertain when it was taken, it wont be late WWII as the man in the drivers hatch is wearing the M1947 HBT shirt so would it be Post War period, the Korean War Period when the unit was redesignated Armored Cavalry, it certainly will be before 1954, as the men are not wearing the U.S.ARMY tapes sewn above their Fatique pockets.

The 23rd Infantry at Ft Benning Georgia 1961, note the unit was still using the orginal crest, without the WE SERVE scroll that would be adopted in an amendment in July 1969.
